If i install iOS 8.4 beta 3 on my iPhone 6 (I'm not a dev), I just want to have the new music app, will I be able to install the final version of 8.4 when it comes out at the end of this month? And by install I mean "update" to the final version? I don't want to have to "restore" my iPhone to the final version when it comes out.

If you in the Public Beta then yes.

Where can I download the public beta? I can't see any download link on the apple seed website and I signed up for their beta program months ago, I'm logged in on their website right now

Once you add the profile to your phone, beta loads appear in software update.

You cant download it. That is not an option. Its OTA only.
You need the beta profile loaded. Then it will appear in software update on device.

IF they chose you. I enter that into my browser on my phone and it auto resets it the main Beta Apple site. Cause again Apple did NOT choose me. So again Apple has to choose you.

It resets me to, I see links in Google to download iOS 8.4 beta 4 but it's not a public beta it's a dev beta, if I install that will it upgrade when the final 8.4 comes out?

If you look about someone may have uploaded the profile so you can download it to your device. That's how I got into the public beta.
